the ties that bind lyrics – dave melillo

how did we get to this place?
in the beginning things were so d*mn easy
it seemed that everything i am was what you wanted
as we grew into our skin
mine got thicker, as yours was wearing thin
thinking bout the boys you missed, the lips un-kissed
what might have been

if you can? t keep on believing, if you don? t want me tonight
then let me know so i can count the ties that bind
if you can? t feel my heart beating, you must be dead inside
so let? s realize, it? s time to let this die, time to let this die

we built a beautiful lie, that any weak soul could not survive
it? s hard to find a reason to remain here
cause our vacations only get you so far
then they lead you to a darker sp*ce
where love is what you feel no longer
we all know feelings so much stronger

if you can? t keep on believing, if you don? t want me tonight
let me know so i can count the ties that bind
if you can? t see that i? m bleeding, then my veins are running dry
so let? s realize, it? s time to let this die, time to let this die

if you still can? t find a reason, if you got no tears to cry
let? s realize, it? s time to let this die

if you can? t keep on believing, if you don? t want me tonight
let me know so i can count the ties that bind
and if you can? t feel my heart beating, then i must be dead inside
so let? s realize, that it? s time to let this die, time to let this die
